RSL Jerwood Awards for Non-Fiction selected writers announced

The 2016 RSL Jerwood Awards for Non-Fiction were judged by John Agard, Daisy Hay and Laurence Scott. Three awards are presented to authors engaged on their first commissioned works of non-fiction and this year went to: Violet Moller, £10,000; and Afua Hirsch and Damian Le Bas, £5000 each. From 2017, the awards will be supported in perpetuity by a generous bequest from the Hon. Giles St Aubyn, a writer and Fellow of the RSL who died in 2015. Jerwood Charitable Foundation are thrilled that this legacy secures the future of this unique opportunity in literature, stating that it has been a joy to work with the RSL and each of the writers to date.

From 28th January Jerwood Gallery will be delighted to welcome Turner Prize Winner (2002) Keith Tyson who will launch their 2017 exhibition programme.

Turn Back Now will feature a selection of works from Tyson's Studio Wall Drawings series that form a visual diary of his practice over the past 20 years - many of which have never been publicly exhibited before.

Brighton-based Tyson says, “I began making Studio Wall Drawings in 1997 when I was sharing a studio with four other artists in South East London where wall space was scarce. I could pin a single large sheet of watercolour paper to a board and scribble down notes, ideas and sketches."

“Over time I began to think of these drawings more as works in their own right, existing somewhere in-between a sketchbook, a journal, a poem and a painting - I found that I could work unhindered by the self-conscious restraint I'd often felt while working on canvas."

The exhibition runs from 28th January until 4th June 2017
